"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews


This is a deeply emotional walk through times and places which everyone experiences at some point in their lives, in their own unique way... First loves, Lost loves, and the emotions in between. I enjoyed Harz' ability to bring the reader inside his emotional space and how he shares his uniquely personal perspective on these experiences.

About the Author

Steven Harz was the winnerof the 2013 International People's Poetry Contest and a multi-time winner ofThe Iron Writer Challenge. In 2017 he won Honorable Mention in the ConnecticutPoetry Society's Al Savard Memorial Poetry Contest. Originally from WestVirginia, he grew up in Maryland and now lives in New England. You mayrecognize these places in his stories.

Steven did not beginwriting until in his 40s, needing that time to collect, and weed through, thethings he'd collected throughout his life. Spending much of his time inside hisown head, healthy or not, much of what he writes comes out of the noise that'sin there.

His work covers various topics and moves between poems that, on one end of thespectrum resemble the lyrics of a country love song, to the other end where hiswords cut into the reader, reminding them of the pain caused by loves gainedand lost.

Steven's words have beenhighlighted in in Inwood Indiana Press' Tracks, Voices 2, Donut Factory,Words+Pictures, Ink Monkey Magazine, The Germ, The Voices Project, PocketThoughts, and Indigo Rising UK. 

Steven Harz is a graduateof Towson University's College of Fine Arts and Communication. He loves musicand reading, coffee and Dr Pepper, sports and Broadway, and watching his boysperform on stage and the baseball diamond.

Reviews of Steven's work:

"Engaging read. Harz manages to translate heartfelt feelings into the written word. It's a work that you can go back to many times and get get something new each time."

"Thanks for bringing the memories roaring back Mr. Harz in the most 'Springsteenish' of ways - we all need you to appreciate where we've been, what we are doing, where we want to go and how to love the one we want to love."
